UserLinux Moves Forward

I don't understand the reasoning of Bruce with regard to KDE.
First there were some rumors spread on the mailing list that gtk is more free
than Qt. When they were corrected (yes, Qt *is* GPL), it was said that Qt
would be to expensive for commercial developers (one Qt license on one
platform costs much less than one month salary of one developer, while
enabling him to produce the same software for three platforms at once).
When these arguments were brought, backed by a long list of commercial
software based on Qt, the next argument against Qt was that UserLinux is not
able to support two desktop environments, too much work.
Now.... Bruce himself, i.e. his company, the company of the founder of
UserLinux will support KDE for UserLinux, commercially.
What was the reason for going against (yes, against, not without) Qt/KDE ?
To me it seems not a single one is left.
